What you’ll need:

 1/2 cup of canned pumpkin (not pumpkin-pie mix)

 ¼ cup peanut butter (with no Xylitol in ingredients)

 1 egg

 2 to 21/2 cups whole wheat flour

 Strawberry or raspberry jam/jelly
(with no sugar or artificial sweeteners added)     

 Unsalted peanuts

These spooky treats are a favorite at our annual Halloween party, and with a dog-friendly base, the dogs can now howl in Halloween delight, too.

Directions:

1 In a mixer or with a hand blender, blend pumpkin, peanut butter and egg.

2 Add in flour slowly. You want your mixture to be smooth and well-mixed. Add more or less flour to get your desired consistency.

3 Take out a piece of dough and roll into a small ½-inch ball.

4 Stretch into a long finger shape, adding dents to mimic the shape of a human finger.

5 Bake at 350 degrees Fahrenheit for 20 minutes or until golden brown.

6 When cookies are cool, dab on a little jelly to one end, and top it with half a peanut.
